The Capercaillie has an exciting new BBQ Hut. You can barbeque all year round whatever the weather.

The BBQ hut originates in Lapland and is called a "Grillikota" in Finish.  It has seating for 15 - 20 people around a central BBQ.  The BBQ uses a special lump wood charcoal and we supply British Hardwood charcoal for your use.

Shaws, the butchers in Lauder, offer a variety of BBQ packs.  

The BBQ Hut is just at the side of the Capercaillie and is very snug.  The opening windows are double glazed.  There is solar lighting - two basic lights so that you can see what you are doing if it is dark and fairy lights for atmosphere.  

Dorset Hardwood Charcoal for the BBQ is provided. To light the charcoal you can use a crumpled piece of paper with a few small pieces of charcoal wrapped in it. Build a pyramid shape around it with other pieces of charcoal and then light the paper.  Leave for a few minutes until the charcoal is well alight then add more charcoal as required.  You will be ready to barbeque in 10 to 15 minutes.  You usually know when you are ready when the lump charcoal beings to turn red, a white ash appears around most of the lumps and you can leave your hand 6 inches above the fire for at least 5 seconds.

Glasses, plates, bbq tools etc are behind the door in the kitchen.
